Coworking in Second Life

Coworking in Second Life

Vadim Zaliva reported that a coworking has been set up in Second Life (wiki page).

Of course, we’ve previously passed around the idea of having a virtual space that people could exist in while working at a physical space in the coworking community, but it was thought to be more of a webcam directory rather than a Second Life world.

However, another option could be to map existing real spaces to rooms in the virtual building, and people working could express their physical presence by
“taking a seat”.

Remote workers not at a shared coworking space 1RL could still get the benefit of the community by hanging out in 2L. We could totally mix it up — and it just might be interesting to augment RL with 2L connections.
